Nottinghamshire hit the headlines in a big way during the 1980s when a number of its miners split from the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM).

The split caused a division not only between miners, but between communities and even families.

Footage shows David Prendergast and others announcing the split over what they deemed an undemocratic NUM.
